London, July 19(ANI): Aston Villa footballer Gabriel Abgonlahor's ex girlfriend Sophie Smith has been accused of harassing his present girlfriend Elizabeth Wheeler by sending her a number of upsetting messages on social networking site Facebook by using a pseudonym.
Smith, of Sutton Coldfield in the West Midlands, has appeared before magistrates in Walsall, and is charged with sending a false message by the public communication network to cause annoyance, inconvenience or anxiety.
Smith, who is 36 weeks' pregnant, is believed to have vigorously denied the claims but has yet to enter an official appeal to the charges.
The 25-year old is the childhood darling of the millionaire footballer and began dating him in 2003, before they split later on, The Daily Mail reports.
Magistrates granted Smith bail on the condition that she has no contact with either Miss Wheeler or Tia Hithersay, who is another of Agbonlahor's former girlfriends.
Smith was also ordered not to go to an address in Streetly, West Midlands, and not to use social network sites Facebook and Twitter under pseudonyms, and she is due back before the court on July 24.
Miss Wheeler is the mother of Agbonlahor's four-year-old son and has previously used Twitter account to talk about the father of her child. (ANI)
